  1. It ate her.

    I don’t really know why, but this story line is oddly disturbing to me. Perhaps it is because of being human, I think of us as belonging at the top of the food chain. But here is a creature that lacks any type of sophisticated nervous system, let alone any intelligence, that has evolved a method of luring much more “intelligent” creatures to their death.
    In her letter, she stated that she “wasn’t suicidal”, but I’m sure that she knew what would happen when she entered the water. The electrical emissions from “Shoggy” causing sexual arousal overrode her self-preservation instincts.

    • There’s a backstory here which will make Cassandra’s motivations clearer (and more complex). Have patience; it will emerge.

    • Though pondering it a little further it might be the case that with the backstory included Cassandra’s actions might become even more disturbing, although that would be dependent to a large extent on the worldview of the reader.
